The Reds were back at Anfield on Saturday, and needed to return to winning ways against Aston Villa.

With Liverpool’s Champions League dream hanging by a thread after a disappointing first leg defeat to Real Madrid, finishing in the top four is more important than ever.

Dean Smith’s side memorably scored seven in the previous encounter between these two sides, adding extra motivation for the Reds heading into this one in search of revenge.


And after a tough game they eventually got their win.

VAR denied Roberto Firmino an equaliser after Ollie Watkins’ first-half opener, but Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold got on the scoresheet in the second period to keep the Reds’ top four hopes alive.
